You can probably list tens of cars that you see on your daily commute. Common cars, such as Honda Civics, Toyota Camrys, and Nissan Altimas run the streets and you can count on your hands and feet how many you see each time you leave your house.
While it probably doesn’t warrant much thought, you probably don’t pay much attention to the cars your drive past unless they are relatively exotic or interesting. A Lamborghini Urus might turn your head if you saw one crossing an intersection, and a Ferrari 360 Modena would definitely give you pause. Cars like Lotus and Aston Martin are rarer than most, but they aren’t the rarest cars on the road. You might not see those every day, but they pale in comparison to the rarest cars ever made.
You don’t need to be a supercar fanatic to know that Koenigseggs are, in general, rare cars. In fact, the average person may never see any model of Koenigsegg in their life. But, one Koenigsegg stands out among the rest as being ultra-rare: the Koenigsegg One:1. Named after it’s astonishing power-to-weight ration of on horsepower to every kilogram, Koenigsegg only created 6 of these 1340hp supercars.
Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR
The Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR is so rare that even most Mercedes-Benz fanatics didn’t even know it existed. The CLK GTR was the street-legal version of the manufacturer’s GT1 class Le Mans car. Only in production for two years, between 1998 and 1999 Mercedes-Benz only produced 20 coupes and 6 roadsters. Both versions of the car shared an impressive 6.9L V12 engine that could reportedly push the car almost 200mph.
Porsche 911 GT1
In way of sportscars, Porsche may take the cake with being one of the more common. You’ve probably seen your fair share of Boxsters and Carreras, but chances are you’ve never seen the Porsche 911 GT1. Considering there were only 25 of the street-legal version ever made, this odd-looking car was also created to uphold the GT1 class requirements for the Le Mans, which stated for a car to be entered there must be a homologous, street-legal version available for sale.
Lamborghini’s are rare in comparison to almost any other street-legal car, but the Veneno itself is even rarer. Built off of the popular Aventador model and boasting 740hp from the V12 motor, the Veneno isn’t just one of the rarest supercars, it’s also one of the rarest Lamborghinis. With only 3 coupes and 3 roadsters ever in existence, you’d be lucky to even see one in person.
Pagani Zonda Revolucion
Outside of the world of exotic cars and supercars, very few people know of the Italian sports car company Pagani. Many people would find themselves awestruck in the presence of any Pagani, and hardly anyone would actually know what the car was. Their more common models, the Huayra and standard Zonda are themselves very rare, but the Zonda Revolucion is ultra-exclusive. In fact, these crazy race-ready supercars looked unique and exotic and had the 800hp from a 6.0L V12 to match its crazy appeal. Pagani only produced 5 of the Zonda Revolucion and has no plans for any future production.
While none of these cars are attainable and cost multiple millions of dollars if you could even find one for sale. They might not make your list of dream cars because they are so outlandish in every aspect, but we wouldn’t be unhappy to stumble across one and just get to at least see them in person.
